The Party on High Street
Since finding each other in Nelson, B.C. seven years ago The Party On High Street has worked tirelessly to bring it's signature feel-good funk jams to the people! We are a lively dance-inducing mix of funk, folk and jazz fuelled rockn' roll, joyfully delivered and presented like a funbomb waiting to make you jive. Our band sings of peculiar youthful enchantments, weird love, and some of the odder aspects of life. Touring and playing live shows has fed our spirits and stroked our souls since the beginning. Every summer we travel further into the Canadian festival scene. Playing the campfires and stages, bars and backyards. This past summer we performed at over 6 music festivals and we are gearing up to do it again this year. At these festivals we've developed a family of friends and fellow musicians, who we've joined on stage and off for plenty of collaborations and all around good time merry music makin'! New album and summer festival tour in the works.

Longtime Victoria Ska & Reggae Fest friends SKAMPIDA make a triumphant return to the Festival for a high-energy party like no other. The rowdy Colombian ska troubadours have been running about the globe causing mischief and it's been too long since they've come to rile up audience. Luckily we've managed to track down and round up the ruffians for this spectacular night of unpredictable fun!
Joining Skampida for this gritty celebration are Victoria reggae favourites SweetLeaf - promising to serve up a heaping dose of horn-heavy goodness - and The Party On High Street, a whirlwind of genre-bending energy, blending up psychedelia, funk, rock and dashes of hip-hop. These three form a mighty triumvirate of party energy that sure to get your blood flowing and heart-rates up!
